The Israeli government is looking at moving its separation barrier deeper into the West Bank of the Jordan River. The new route is planned to include two Jewish settlements.
If the plan is put in place, it will leave around 20,000 Palestinians stranded on the Israeli side of the fence.Palestinian officials have condemned the matter as an attempt to annexe a slice of their territory.
